Q: I’m in phase 1 of the Size Surge Workout. I like it a lot, but I notice that I’m getting some wrist pain during barbell curls. Should I try a wider or narrower grip for more arm gains without the pain?
A: You’re extremely motivated. How do we know? Because you apparently read the Size Surge e-book up through phase 1 and stopped so you could attack that program. If you would’ve read further, you would’ve seen that Jonathan had the same problem and switched to dumbbell curls in phase 2…
He did them standing; however, our colleague and Olympic coach the late Charles Poliquin reported that EMG studies show that seated-curl variations produce much more biceps-fiber activity than standing…
Why? He believed that the body has to expend too much neural drive through the hips and legs to stabilize the body while standing—and that diminishes the size effects on the biceps as you curl…
With that, we suggest you switch from barbell curls to seated dumbbell curls for better arm gains. Your wrist pain should disappear as new biceps growth becomes clear!
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.

Ripped Muscle Now: Harvard Research
Harvard researcher Dr. Dimitrios Stamou discovered an enzyme that eats bodyfat. It’s helping women and men lose up to 21 pounds on average in less than 28 days.
Plus, it can help bodybuilders get freaky ripped faster than ever (see the pic of the 69-year-old who is shredded at the link below).
Remember, when you’re leaner, you look bigger than ever… And best of all, your body can MAKE this fat-blasting enzyme by eating these specific foods… and they taste GREAT.
Our colleague, the man who owned the gym that Lou Ferrigno trained at in “Pumping Iron,” turned us onto this. He’s using it himself to shed fat faster than ever, and he’s in his 50s. Get the details and see his photo HERE.
